A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a full time Corporate Partnerships Manager in the Corporate & Events fundraising team at SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity.

About the role

We are seeking an experienced individual to account manage existing and future corporate partnerships, with a particular aim to maximise the fundraising element involved.

The role will lead on strategic development of existing corporate partnerships, including our 5 year partnership with Openreach, as well as contributing to new business activity. The Corporate Partnership Manager will motivate and inspire employees and senior staff at corporate partner companies to raise funds for SSAFA across all opportunities and will also work with partners on raising awareness of the charity, on In Kind donations and volunteering support.

This is a strategically important role for the charity. The post holder will work very closely with other members of the Corporate and Events team, as well as liaising with the Commercial partnerships team to ensure we are maximising opportunities for the charity. You will also work with appropriate service delivery colleagues to identify SSAFA funding and project requirements.


To carry out this role successfully you will have experience in account managing corporate partnerships, with a demonstrable track record in maximising income. Excellent financial forecasting and reporting skills are essential, and you must be a ‘team player’. You will be required from time to time to help out with new business recruitment and to attend events on behalf of the charity.

The successful applicant will work very closely with a Corporate Fundraising Officer, who is tasked with attracting new corporate income.

SSAFA is an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
